Location - location - location. What a great location in Mackinaw City! We were no more than 20 feet from the lake. We watched the 4th of July fireworks from our patio. We could see both the city fireworks and the island fireworks. Don't be fooled by the 'gourmet' breakfast - it's not. It is far and away the worst... More

We choose this hotel because the website said it was the newest lakefront hotel. The lobby was very nice but the the front desk staff were not friendly and we felt rushed through the check-in process. The room was clean but had a combination of new and older decor. The shower floor did show some serious wear. The balcony was... More

This hotel needed an update, particularly in the public are in need of an update. We were upgraded to a larger room for $20, but the bathroom was situated in a very strange place within the room. Beds were memory foam, and quite comfortable. Location was excellent- walking distance to everything in the city. Breakfast is mediocre, at best and... More

The Hamilton Inn was a very nice hotel, right on the beach. The beach was right outside our patio door, which was lovely. The room contained a refrigerator, which was a plus. Although we didn't use the pool, it looked very nice. It was litterally steps away from the ferry to Mackinaw Island, which was quite convenient. The complimentary breakfast... More

We stayed 1 night here, & it was a great location to chill out, get up early, and head to the island. The room was clean, and we even got upgraded to a suite when we checked in. The price was a little steep, but what do you expect during tourist season, and being right next to the ferry dock!

This is a lovely hotel for the price. We were offered an upgrade for $20 more upon arrival for a new, 2 room suite with lake view & balcony. It was nice, but the layout was not well-planned for air circulation. The 2 room suite had only a small vent to circulate air from main room to smallest bedroom. This... More

We went to Mackinac Island for our anniversary. Before going to the island we spent the night at the Hamilton Inn Select. We received an attractive hand written reminder postcard before our stay; it was a nice reminder to our anticipation. When we arrived the desk clerk suggested we pay to upgrade to a larger, higher beach view room. We... More

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel several times. We stayed here again for two nights (before and after a night on Mackinac Island).in mid June. The first night was quite chaotic as a bus load of people had been forced to stay over an extra night for some reason. So the lake side room we had reserved... More

I'm not sure what it was about this room, but when you had the air conditioning on, the room became very cold and when you turned it off, it was very stuffy. At night we simply ran the air so we could sleep, but at 4am each night we were there, it was like they turned the air off to... More

On cold day in May received the warmest of welcomes from the desk staff. The hotel was fully booked due to a Girl Scout gathering but must say the scouts were very well behaved during the complimentary breakfast and also in the hotel. You didn't even realize they were there. Due to the fact that the hotel was fully booked... More
